Dental procedures are becoming less and less invasive as new techniques are developed. One of these new techniques is the gum regeneration technique. This particular dental procedure is used to stabilize areas of the gum tissue where it is receding.
Gum recession is a serious problem both with natural teeth and with dental implants. It is important to intervene by stopping the process and when necessary, repairing damage caused by gum recession. The gum regeneration technique uses special instruments to create a small, precise hole in the receding gum tissue. Collagen material is then added to the hole. This process stabilizes the gum area and prevents further recession of the gum.
Even though this is a surgical procedure, it does not require sutures. It is a minimally invasive method of helping halt gum recession.
Receding Gum Treatment and Rejuvenation
Gum disease is the major cause of receding gingival tissue. Gum disease is caused when bacteria build up, usually at the interface of a tooth or implant and are allowed to grow until infection sets in. Bacterial infections destroy gum tissue and can cause deterioration of bone tissue. In the case of a natural tooth, it may fall out if the infection is not stopped. A dental implant will fail and need to be removed.
Gum recession can be reversed when the area is thoroughly cleaned and the gum is treated. The gum regeneration technique helps in this process. Collagen has been shown to enhance healing in the gums. When the gums have been damaged, it is preferable to help them heal without causing more harm. The gum regeneration technique allows for the introduction of collagen into the gum tissue. This is done without making an incision and causing more trauma to the tissue. This method promotes faster healing of the gums and regeneration of gum tissue.
